Climate change has a severe impact on the accessibility of various resources on earth.
The present study determines the impact of climate change on food availability for 27
years from 1990-2016. An ARDL model is used in order to find out the long-run and
short-run relationships. The result shows that average temperature shows a negative
relationship with food security, as the temperature is increasing the food security is
decreasing Food security has a positive relation with agriculture credit since as the
agriculture credit increases it will increase the production of agriculture sector which in
result increase the supply of food and increase the food security in the country. Fertilizer
consumption also has a positive effect on food availability, which is obvious as more and
more food is provided with the increased use of fertilizer.
